I love October because.. | Dearest Lou

I love October because..

October is one of my most favorite months of the year. I love watching the season change and breathing in the cool crisp air. I'm also really excited for Halloween and spending time with close friends. Daryl and I have been working on our pretty amazing costumes..100 awesome points if you can guess what we're going to be ;P 

I asked a few of my lovely sponsors this month to introduce themselves and share something festive they've done. So I'm now going to turn the time over to them. Be sure to check out their lovely spaces they're both new mama's and have a great sense of style!

I am just a simple girl who adores fashion.  I started a blog because of this passion and it has amounted to so much more.  

So let me introduce myself.  I am Erin, a craftaholic and a new momma to a beautiful baby boy named Aidan.  I blog about personal style, the world of fashion, motherhood and so much more!  Come say hi and join me on my journey as I share with you a glimpse of my life and what inspires me.

October is by far my favorite month of the year.  Besides being an October baby, I'm pretty obsessed with all things Halloween.  Pumpkin carving has become somewhat of a tradition for my fiancee and I.  I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so this is quite an intense activity in my house!  But one we both love.  This year, as you can see, I decided to carve the Corpse Bride, which also happens to be one of my favorite Halloween movies.  But nothing beats Hocus Pocus!!

Hi everyone! I'm Sarah, the blogger behind Frills for Thrills. I live in Portland, OR with my husband Ian and our brand new baby boy Greyer. I'm a pastor's wife, stay-at-home mom, fashion lover, and interior decorator. I mostly post my daily outfits, but hardly ever write about fashion. I have a hard time verbalizing my thoughts, so Frills for Thrills is used mostly as a journal these days. So I hope you enjoy reading all of my jumbled thoughts on life's blessings and burdens and everything in between! Other than that I love to blog about our house that we just bought a little over a year ago. 
Like I previously mentioned, we just had an itty bitty baby boy, Greyer. So we haven't gotten out much this month. We have gone on a few walks to enjoy this beautiful fall weather before the rain comes! I absolutely LOVE the way the fall leaves hit the gray skies here. It's like they're on fire or something! 

So go check out and follow their lovely blogs! I've absolutely adored following both of these lovely ladies pregnancy journeys and I can't wait to see their little baby boys grow up. They're going to be so stylish just like their mamas.

If you are interested in sponsoring Dearest Lou next month send me an email at dearestlou@gmail.com. I've changed the way I'm sponsoring for the months of November forward and have a lower rate next month since I will be going into labor (;
